Dies R Us Challenge-December 1,2017 (Something used in the words of a Christmas Carol)

Hi, Friends!

Happy Holidays!  'Tis the season to be merry and it's time for the Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme is... Something used in the words of a Christmas carol.  I was inspired to use jingle bells!  I just love this wonderful ornate bell die from Tutti Designs!  All you need to do is get out those Christmas dies and make a project.  We'd love to see it over at the challenge!

And, here is my card...

I started with a black card base and paired it with red.  I embossed the white panel using a SU embossing folder.  The gold banner behind the bells was die cut using Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banners.  The die cut sentiment is from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  A gold rose button, black ribbon, and gold twine added for interest.  Gold Nuvo crystal drops were applied on the bell to finish my Christmas card.

All dies that were used for my card with links are listed below.  I hope you create a project with the Christmas theme and join us for the challenge!

 There are so many choices at Dies R Us store!  I hope you check out all the amazing stamps, dies, etc.  I'd love to see your project in the challenge...happy creating!
